It’s an exciting year ahead for us here at McCarthy’s, and, feeling refreshed after the Christmas break, one we can’t wait to get our teeth stuck into.
It gets off to a flying start with the annual St Gemma’s Hospice Christmas Tree Recycling scheme, which we’re delighted to be involved in again. One of our removals vans and some of our happy helpers will yet again be out collecting Christmas Trees from the streets of Leeds, ready to be recycled into exciting new things.
Now in its fifth year, last year the charity raised just over £12,000 from 1,300 trees collected – so this year they’re hoping to increase that to 1,500 trees and £15,000! (we’ve told the team helping to make sure they have their Weetabix that morning – so put them to work!) If you would like to have your tree collected and recycled, the deadline for booking was 3rd January but has since fully booked up! Collections will take place in the following postcodes: LS6, LS7, LS8, LS9, LS13, LS14, LS15, LS16, LS17, LS18, LS19 or LS28 and will be taking place between Tuesday 9th January and Saturday 13th January.
No one likes a sad and sorry Christmas tree left to fade in a front garden for the next few months, and you’re raising money for this wonderful local charity to boot.
Another big celebration for us this January is that we’ve hit a milestone of 2,000 tonnes of waste paper having been recycled through our McCarthy’s Safe Shred service. That’s the same weight as 330 African Bush Elephants or 158 double decker buses. Or, put another way, enough to make 10.8 million toilet rolls! That would keep you going for a while.
It’s going to be a big year for confidential waste disposal with the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) coming into effect in May. Companies will need to get on top of their confidential waste disposal, and we’re here to help answer any questions businesses have about paper or electronic waste disposal. Now’s the time to start getting everything lined up ready for the change.
And finally – it’s an exciting year for McCarthy’s generally….a big birthday year! We hit the big 50 and we plan to do it in style. Of course! Watch this space.
There’s going to be plenty of news and announcements over the coming weeks and months – we look forward to sharing them with you!
Friendly helpful staff, good location and secure premisis
Pleasant, very helpful and always available. Couldn’t have asked for more!
McCarthys was reasonably priced and easy to access storage. We recently moved house and used a storage container in the Harrogate centre.
The staff and in particular Tina were very helpful and happy to help.
Very pleased with the service and a big thank you to Tina.
